Prima Ballerina and former Principal Dancer of American Ballet Theater (ABT) Irina Dvorovenko taught a Master Class to the Greenwich Ballet Academy (GBA) at the 181 Studio on Monday April 20th. Dvorovenko taught a GBA Master Class in 2011 and returned to meet the next generation of dancers.
During her visit, Dvorovenko taught young dancers some of the finer points of stage presence, demonstrating both poise and specific movements to remain in control during performances.
Artistic director, Yuri Vodolaga. says of Dvorovenko “She has a way of connecting with our dancers in a manner that is both fun and demanding, informative, and leaving them with a powerful and lasting sense of confidence regarding performance.”
